Me and Emilie sat on the couch outside the dressing rooms waiting for the boys to get ready for sound check. I looked over at Em who was frantically texting on her phone. Probably a new boyfriend or something.
"Who ya texting?" I say leaning towards her to see.
"No one." She quickly puts her head up and looks directly forward. Not making eye contact with me.
Ha it's definitely not 'no one'.
"Awe come one!"
I grabbed her phone but she had already turned it off.
I type in 5767, which stands for 5sos and I know they are her favourite band, her phone opens as Em jumps on top of me to grab it but I pull away.
Emilie turned her head around still pinning me to the couch. Calum stood there looking straight at me and I felt my smile automatically drop. I like him but something's up and it hurts that he won't talk to me.
Emilie grabs her phone, jumps off me and starts texting again. While me and Calum were just there looking at each other. Now's my chance.
"Um...uh...Cal?" I finally get the words out of my mouth.
"Yeah?" He flashes me a fake but still beautiful smile.
"Can I just talk to you for like 5 minutes?" I can feel my hands shaking.
Why am I so nervous?
"Um..sorry we have to go on stage but..uh..afterwards k?" He says walking towards the door which leads side stage.
"Yeah afterwards.." I say once he's closed the door even though I know he wouldn't of heard me.
I don't get it. He kissed me and now he can't talk to me.
Emilie jumps off the couch and we walk down the long hall way to side stage so we can watch the boys practice. We decided to sit up the back of the arena so the boys (and all the rich girls who have sound check tickets) won't see us. Once we got to the seats furthest away Emilie asks me the question I really don't want to talk about.
"What was that about?" She said nodding at Calum.
"What do you mean? Nothing" I lie but she knows it and turns to me.
I get up and move another seat over putting my legs over the seat I was just on.
"Fine" I sigh knowing she won't let it go. "This morning when Calum was leaving he kissed me and now he won't talk to me." I finish looking down at my hands.
"What?!" She screamed so loud that some girls in sound check turned around.
"Um..are you guys okay?" Ashton asks because everyone else had stopped playing.
Emilie looked towards them and stood up, I sat up in my seat hoping she wouldn't do anything stupid.
"No!! We are not okay!!! That asshole playing the bass kissed my best friend today and now he won't speak to her!!! Even after I said that if he touched her he would be dead!!!" Her voice boomed throughout the whole arena and I wouldn't be surprised if people in China could hear us.
The boys stared blankly at her and Luke was slightly smiling. He so likes her. Cute! Then they all looked at Calum who's face seemed to be red. I put my head in my hands and just looked at my feet.
A tear fell from my eye.
"Calum! What the hell dude!?!!" Luke seem amused by the whole situation which really wasn't helping.
"Yeah man!! Like what the fuck!! You can't just do that. She at least needs an explanation!!!"
"Calum! I accused Belle of doing something today because you seemed upset!! But I should've been accusing you of making her upset!!" Michael finished his voice even louder than Em's.
Then all the tears came out together. I sat there crying and Emilie turned back around to look at me.
"You know what? You can keep your tickets!! We're leaving!!"
Emilie grabbed my hand and stormed out with me slowly walking behind still crying. We stopped once we had exited the main arena and were standing in the foyer.
"C'mere" she said sadly, bringing me into a hug.
"I'm so sorry Emilie! I know how much you want to go" I let out between sobs and put my head in my hands again. We stood there until someone came out of the same door we just did.
"Belle, I'm really sorry" I head shot up and I looked at Calum.
His eyes were red and his cheeks were wet. He'd been crying too.
"Calum, I don't think you should be here. Just leave her alone she's already got enough going on." Emilie butted in putting her arm around my shoulder.
"Look Belle I'm really sorry. I didn't mean to kiss you I knew you were just out of a relationship. I'm just...I'm really sorry"
"You think this is about you kissing me?"
"Well uh yeah?"
"Calum you can kiss me any day of the week!" A smirk formed on his lips. But it faded when I continued. "I'm upset because after you kissed me you ignored me and when I tried to talk to you about it you blew me off. You haven't even said hello to me yet."
"Um...hi." He obviously didn't know what to say seeing as that's all he could pull off.
I sigh and turn to Emilie.
"Belle! Wait!" He grabbed my arm and turned me around so I was facing him. "I didn't want to talk to you because I really like you already and I know that I have to leave no matter what and then I'll have to be apart from you. The more I talk to you the more I like you and the more I don't want to let you go." His words hit me like a bullet train and I wrapped my arms around his neck and he hugged me tight.
"Does this mean we still get to see the concert?" Emilie quickly asks with excitement.
"Um...haha. Yeah I guess" I say pulling away from Callum.
"Oh thank god" she always made me laugh.
We all walked back in to the arena Calum walking back to the stage and me and Em standing side stage. We got to be side stage when they perform because the mosh was practically already full and they thought we would have more fun.
